The only other opp.was (Remove) both doors and make special plates too move the step bolts over to the proper location. They are NOT right but a Lot better than original.
Try taking the step off, cut a 1" wide section out with the slotted hole and down the side about 1-1/2" so you have a "U" cutout, make a new flat plate with a hole in the correct position on the steps and weld it back together. That way if the bolt ends up in the middle of the vertical side of the step, you have wrench clearance. Lot easier than taking doors/frames off.
